Though William's obituary seems very thorough, it seems there were several details omitted. Williiam was also survived by his oldest Son, James Michael Wootton, 57, two adult granddaughters and one great-granddaughter. He is also survived by his only daughter, Deborah Ann Chilton, 55 and two adult grandsons. Though is seems his family may want us to be forgotten as though we never existed because we were illegitimate when we were born and given up for adoption, he did have a relationship with us as adults at one time and chose to end that relationship. We are still his children and should be recognized as such.

We were extremely sad to learn it feels passing. He was a fine friend, Paratrooper and an incredible husband to the love of his life, Nancy. Rest in Peace, Bill.

Margaret and I were so sorry to hear that Bill had passed away. We hadn't seen Bill since Nancy's funeral. We met Bill and Nancy in Riverwood and remained friends after they moved to Punta Gorda. We were all members of a wine tasting group that met monthly for a number of years. We drank a lot of wine together and had several dinners together over the years. Bill was very knowledgeable about wine and he would always find a good wine to recommend for us to buy and drink. Bill was a very good person who was always interesting to be with. We will miss his friendship and only wish we could have had one more bass of wine with hm. May he rest in peace.
